The Last 3 Days of Christmas!

Hello! I hope your weekend is going great so far! Have you seen all of the challenges going on at The Greeting Farm and Club Anya and Friends? I am absolutely giddy! I have just finished up my last card for the 12 Days of Christmas challenge, so I have #10, #11, and #12 to show you today!! Then I am off to work on some of the challenges from yesterday. I don't know that I will be able to get them all done, but I am going to have fun trying!

For #10 I reached back into my stash for this paper. This is some of my very favorite paper ever - it was the first paper that I absolutely obsessed about finding. When I first saw pieces of it online I couldn't stop thinking about it. Then I got it and was scared to do anything with it! I have almost every sheet still intact but I am determined to start using it (and some other papers that I loved too much to cut - it is a sickness, I tell you!) The "Thank You" panel was created by stamping sentiments form the Verve set Celebration of Thanks.

The Details:
Stamps: Dahlia - The Greeting Farm, Sentiments - Verve
Paper: Basic Grey Romani, Real Red - SU, PTI White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Real Red
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: B21,B32,B93, BV000 over all
Clothes: YG21,YG23,YG25,R81,R83,R85,R22,R24,R27,R29
Misc: Prima flowers, stick on half pearls - ?,foam tape

I flipped sketch #11.

Amy said...

Oh man I SO here you on the 'must have' papers and then just letting them sit! Along with my personal scrap challenge I'm thinking 2010 needs to be a cut into paper year too LOL!

Think of it this way though... maybe that paper was just waiting for the perfect stamps to come along and now it is a match made in heaven on these cards... I sure think it is! :)
